Archbald Borough DPW will cease picking up yard waste curbside in biodegradable bags the week of October 23, 2017 during fall leaf vacuuming. The bags will be picked up curbside one additional time during the week of December 4th on your recycling day and then cease until Spring 2018.

Vegetation set out in plastic bags will not be picked up by the Borough or J.P. Mascaro.
There can be no commingling with any other materials; that is no brush or branches, no garbage, animal waste, dirt, construction material, or other recyclables.
